Maestro falls sick. His brother steps in

January 10, 2018 by norman lebrecht


Vladimir Jurowski has cancelled this weekend’s concerts with the Israel Philharmonic.

His brother Dmitr (pictured) is flying out to replace him in a Haydn cello concerto and Mahler 7.

Next message from the Israel Phil: The cellist Marie-Elisabeth Hecker has cried off.


Before you ask: No, she doesn’t have a sister.

      Unfortunately this time, according to my intel, they’re playing it from beginning to end.
